    Pvt Amys Mom's Note:

    My mother has been making this recipe for years. Its quick and easy and comes close to the original. I am not a big fan of the "chile". I have substitued chopped green chiles and shredded the jack cheese - which I actually prefer - but either way, this is a tasty one!

      I love this recipe and will definitely make it again. The casserole puffed up beautifully! We used 3 fresh poblano chiles, which I roasted just prior to putting the in dish. I put a gravy boat of ranchero red (enchilada) sauce on the table, to be used instead of marinara, and I served oven-warmed flour tortillas and butter, and freshly made guacamole with the casserole. Awesome meal! Thanks!

      This is an excellent recipe. I was suprised that the flavor of the chiles permeated the entire dish. I stuffed the peppers with Chihuahua cheese and topped with a Mexican cheese blend. Will definitely make this again and again.

      This was so yummy and easy! DH and I ate almost the whole casserole. I used a can of chopped chiles as suggested in the description. I spread the chopped chiles on the bottom of the casserole and laid thick slices of monterey jack cheese on top of the chiles. I then followed the recipe as instructed, pouring the egg mixture over top and sprinkled with mild cheddar cheese. It cooked to a beautiful golden color and when spooned into, the monterey jack cheese oozed out, making your mouth water! This has a quiche like texture and the chile flavor is mild, not overpowering. I think it would make a great brunch idea! I will definitely repeat this and want to use whole chiles as in the recipe! Thanks Pvt Amys Mom!
